If a breakdown occurs, the manufacturer will replace it. The assortment is represented by a fairly wide selection of tents according to the types of frames, thermal insulation and dimensions.
Types of Frames
The ease of installation of the structure depends on the type of frame. And this is important, because when fishing, you often have to set up a tent alone. Sometimes you have to go from hole to hole, transferring the design. In tents "Penguin" for winter fishing mechanisms are used "umbrella" and "cube".
- The mechanism of the "Umbrella". The design is characterized by the fastest and easiest installation method. The aluminum tubes in this device make the design resistant to gusts of wind. In calm weather, the frame design makes it possible to move from place to place indiscriminately. The most common type of tent frame for fishing in winter. The design depends on the capacity: 1-seater tents "Penguin" are represented by a four-beam umbrella, and 2-seater, 3-seater and 4-seater - six-beam.
- The mechanism of the "Cube". It is based on the fastening of the frame arcs in the Hub mechanism using cotter pins. Such a mechanism allows you to literally set up a tent in just three steps. The design is characterized by very high strength and reliability. In the series of tents "Penguin" frame "cube" have a model of "Prism".
For the production of tents "Penguin" use synthetic fabric "Oxford", inserts of breathable fabric (fabric raincoat fabric ST-1), synthetic winterizer to increase heat capacity.
The Oxford fabric is made of synthetic yarns that are intertwined in a certain way - the “matting” (“Panamanian weaving”). This method is a kind of interweaving of threads used in weaving baskets.
The density of the fabric is measured in den and depends on the density of the threads. The density categories of Oxford are represented by the following species: 210, 240, 300, 420, 600 den. Of course the larger the number, the denser the fabric.
Oxford is waterproofed with an internal PU coating. In the manufacture of protective covers and tents, a fabric with a water resistance index of 1000-3000 mm is used. Frost resistance of Oxford fabric with PU reaches -60 ° C.
Penguin tents use Oxford fabrics 240 PU 1000, 2000.
In winter-type tents, ventilation is needed - for this, inserts from the "breathing" fabric are used in certain places. The company "Penguin" uses fabric mantle fabric ST-1. This material contains 35% cotton, which helps the fabric "breathe", 65% - polyethylene, which in turn makes the fabric resistant to mechanical stress and pollution.
The product is treated with water-repellent impregnation.
The synthetic winterizer material is a synthetic non-woven fabric used for insulation and compaction. In multi-layer tents "Penguin" for fishing in the cold, a synthetic winterizer is located between the layers of fabric to improve thermal insulation properties.
Three-layer and two-tent fishing tent - a suitable solution for winter fishing.
Material for three-layer tents Material for three-layer tents
Tent Coat Penguin Thermolight is a three-layer material based on 2 layers of "Oxford" and synthetic winterizer. All these components are quilted into a single fabric. Such a material retains heat much better when compared with classic counterparts.

The universal tents of the Penguin company include the model Prism Shelters, having a two-layer coating.

This model has different dimensions: it can be two-, three- or four-seater, but everywhere there is enough space for everyone, and everything will always be at hand.
A tent having a two-layer coating can also be all-weather, since the two-layer product has tents isolated from each other. If desired, one of the tents - internal - can be removed. And she will become summer.
Any choice is always difficult. And the choice of a tent for fishing can be compared with the choice of a house. It should be warm, light, comfortable. Mandatory windows and doors, as well as storage space. At that moment the tent should be light and convenient for transportation.
In summer, the tent needs airing, therefore the covering should be from the "breathing" fabric with vents for ventilation. In spring and autumn, excess moisture should not enter the tent. In winter, it becomes a reliable shelter from snow, frost and wind.
A variant of an all-weather tent can be considered its tourist types. But we must remember that the tourist tent comes with a floor, which will not be very convenient for fishing.
The ideal option would be a two-layer tent "Prism Shelters", since one inner layer can be removed in the summer, and besides, it easily turns into a tent with a canopy.
